Funny you said that, I was looking at mine this afternoon and thought something might be missing from that picture. How do the headlamp surrounds differ from other than being separate pieces?

Also saw this today. I asked the guy about it, he told me it was an NAS truck he had converted by a company in Vermont. He said the company was 4x4 something, wasn't really paying too close attention as I assumed he was just going to say ECR. The truck was okay, I noticed it had holes drilled in the side of the hood for ventilation... I hate those. It also had camo seat covers/upholstery, wasn't feeling that either. I was stoked to see the truck driving through the city though.

That would be the 4x4 Center in VT, they do good work, the owner worked at RN for a long time.

My old college roommate is a dentist now.

So I go over to his office for a check-up.

Now he's sporting a Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale:




Damn, someone's going Uptown.

Thinking about my friend's Ferrari made me remember the Ferraris I used to dream about owning when he and I were roommates. My two favorites are the 512BB:


and the 288 GTO:


My favorite is the 288 GTO. It's uglier.

Man, check out this chump:

http://www.pozitifpc.com/editorblog/..._288_gto_5.jpg

Homeboy installed some booming sound system into his 288 GTO. The horror.

I'm digging the ancient toggles:

And peep the hood:

Just awesome.

Please do not touch:

I don't know what it is about the 288 GTO, but to me it feels like a car. It doesn't feel like a jet with wheels.

Ive gotten to spend a lot of time behind the wheel of a 997 GT3RS, and ridden i a 360 Challenge Stradale quite a few times; both on the road and the track.

I'd take the Porsche, hands down. Although the Ferrai is a beautiful machine.


John- Agree with you on the 288 GTO. One of my favorite cars. A guy in my neighborhood has one. I'll have to try to get some pics sometime.

I'm curious, why would you take the Porsche "hands down" ?

"I think the a Ferrari is a scaled down version of God, and the Porsche 911 is a jumped up Volkswagen Beetle."

As it does for me.

I just don't feel it on the CS. If I were in the market to walk into a dealership and buy a street-legal track car that I can basically go out and campaign as is, the 997 GT3RS would be the car for me. Something incredibly well-built and engineered that I can go out to the track and flog weekend after weekend.

I simply have no interest in a utilitarian 360. The 360 is a road car for me. I think that's where it shines. I want it to be as nice as it can be and still kick ass. I want some carpet.

I don't really look at the GT3RS as that much of a departure from a basic 997. The car is inherently business like. The GT3RS just takes that principle further.

Both the 360 CS and the GT3RS are fantastic designs with great components but I just don't think the concept is as sound with the CS. Take the powerplant. The Porsche motor is already very strong and reliable, but then they add things like titanium connecting rods to make sure you can hammer the thing mercilessly. The brakes of the GT3RS are a substantial upgrade from a normal 997. Porsche shed a lot of weight from the 997. They took a lot away. But they added a lot too. The CS is just stripped.

With the CS you give up a lot of what makes the 360 Modena such a great car and you don't really get anything exciting in exchange.
Fuck that.




That clip underquotes the GT3RS on power. I believe it's 416hp. Although the Porsche still weighs in at something like 400lbs more than the Ferrari.

Love the 512TR, but I was bummed when Ferrari switched from the centerlock (I think that's what it's called) to the five lug nuts. The early ones had the centerlocks like the 512BB. I'm not sure why Ferrari did that, but it bummed me out. I grew up lusting after the centerlock wheels.

The 288 GTO has them. So do the F40 and Enzo. I would feel ripped off a little if I paid that much $$$ and didn't get the centerlocks.

Am I the only one who thinks the Enzo is a ringer for the Mach 5?:
